Subject: Uh-mazing show
The sound on this version is top-notch, which is a blessing for such an epic set.

It's a balancing act between playing the songs by the book and jamming out a little. Fiddle with the tempo or key too much, and the song gets butchered. But right here we have the Grateful Dead, fearlessly riding the knife's edge of experimentation, and making it look easy.

This show is such a killer example of the Dead live. Makes a great example for the newcomer, and a real feast for the seasoned head.

Love those pristine '71 soundboards...What's there not to love here? Good ol GD at its best!

Subject: Two in a row
Interesting...two shows in a row with a Sugar Magnolia false start. Ok, not all that interesting. Very nice sound, no complaints here. Looks like a good, long show of dance tunes. Bet these people were wore out when the show was over!

Subject: Pigpen in top form
Great show but a slight notch below the best of the year. Some special performances earn this performance top marks though. It can't be said enough how wonderful this Bird Song is. All of Pigpen's performances here are bang-on. The SMBH and GDTRFB>Lovelight are also stand-standout performances.

Great Bird Song, strong Ron show. Fabulous Hard To Handle.

But...

Why does the existence of drums in Good Lovin' mean it is automatically cut up into THREE tracks? It's ONE song. So Good Lovin' now has two artificial interruptions in it.

And a less-than-two-minute "Jam" gets it's own track?!?!? Jamming is what this band is all about! We should be able to hear GDTR into Lovelight as one uninterrupted piece, THE WAY THEY PLAYED IT. If that means they have to be listed as one track, so be it.

At it's best, this site does not provide a perfect segue: a seamless transition without pause from one track to the next. At worst, it does not proceed to the next track on it's own, and it's necessary to click the mouse to hear the next part of the song.

In the car (or other CD player), the transition from one track to the next is also very pronounced. I thought one of the ways the band weaved their magic was long, uninterrupted pieces of music. Why are you guys ruining the mood?

Does anyone agree with me?

Subject: All I Know Is.....SOLD! BROOKLYN BRIDGE!!
This tape, dubbed from a crispy soundboard in my freshman year of college has been part of my treasured favorites for 20 years. Getting a clean, complete listen to this show is an absolute joyous occasion.

Primordial versions of Sugar Mags, Truckin, Playin' are hopped up and explosive. Loser is powerfully "Sweet Susie." Quite possibly the best Bird Song of all time, hands down. Hard To Handle cooks at a high tempo, also in the top 5 ever, and Good Lovin' is epic. Pigpen is spot o with charisma and timing for a priceless Buck & A Quarter Jam, the likes of which has no better anywhere, at least to my knowledge (and if there is one, please e-mail me at greenwarbler@gmail.com).

This show is flawless. 8 stars, minimum. Thank you Sir Mick for completing this show with far superior quality than I've ever heard it before!

Subject: Awesome Good Lovin'
Definitely a pigpen show. The setlist is pretty standard Spring '71, and the playing is good throughout (aside from technical difficulties), but Pigpen definitely shines in this show.

The classic Brooklyn Bridge rap in Good Lovin' is definitely worth a listen. The other highlight of the show being the GDTRFB>Lovelight complete with pigpen hooking up random audience members.

Worth a listen or two in my books, but it's early 1971, so it's all pretty standard besides that. Not much jamming... Just the same old songs being played the same old ways.

Is this an upgrade of the previous post? What a classic Pigpen show. Nice stuff all around. '71 is one of the top years for me.

this is quite the tease. the lovelight here is pig's big 'dollar and a quarter meltdown, and i recall the jamming to be extra heavy, to cover the embarassment almost if feels like
